Word, I think it's pretty fun. When you/if you're familiar with writers it's kind of like a giant scavenger hunt looking for tags, pieces, etc.

Here are a couple nice Bay Area graffiti photo streams if anyone's interested...

Yeah man, the f/4L IS version one of the SHARPEST Canon zoom lenses. I was on a tight budget back when I bought the 70-200 f/4L and I never really got around to using it much since it was too slow for low-light. Even with my 70-200 f/2.8 IS now, I still find myself using primes 90% of the time.

Speaking of gear, I'm still contemplating about trading my 50L for a 35L. However, I've found a new favorite combo...1D3 + 24L. It's close to a 35 equivalent on a full-frame so I'm still debating. I might instead choose to flip the 24L for the mark II version or save up a lil more for that new 1D4, depending on how reviews turn out on its low-light capabilities. One thing is for sure, the 1D body is so much better on the hands the 5D2 with grip...and don't get me start with AF comparisons laugh.gif

Sounds like the Canon S90 is what you're looking for. Think G11 in a more compact body. I'm selling my 24-70L, 70-200 f/4L and Sigma 10-20 to buy the G11 + gifts for friends and family.

Thanks. Got it off Amazon for $439. I might end up spending more since I'm thinking about getting a bag for it now.

sounds like a Canon 50 f/1.8 II or 50 f/1.4 if you're willing to drop a lil more. The 50mm range makes a good portrait lens for cropped bodies. A longer prime you could look at is the 85 f/1.4. In terms of quality of image produced for the price you pay, the 50 f/1.8 is a no-brainer.

You should start looking for deals now. I have been watching multiple amazing deals pop up a few times a week that I would definitely snatch up if I hadn't already. Also start deciding now whether you'd like the body alone and invest in a better lens or go for the whole body plus kit lens that way you also know if you need to be researching lenses. All the deals I have seen now include the kit lens at prices that are even better than the price of the body alone. Either way it's good that you've started researching now so that you can make a better informed decision.

Good luck! It is an awesome camera!

$500 is his listed price ...

I would go with the 2.8 IS however I'm just using it for studio work .. however I been approached by several wedding photographers that want to take me along and all of them have requested the 70-200 2.8 IS .. I don't mean request .. strongly suggested to have it .. lol

They make money too - their prices start at 3k

$500 shipped and PPed to a confirmed address in the US. It'll cost a lil more for Canada though. It's in pristine condition since I've almost never used it.

Yep. That's why I don't feel too bad about not having used the 2.8 IS too much yet. I know that when I start shooting weddings, they will come in handy. It all depends on the photographers style though. I have friends who shoot weddings and their longest lens is the 135L. Even then they shoot 80% of their shots with primes like the 35L.

It looks like the offical video of Young Money's Bedrock video was shot with DSLRs (Canon). Interesting.

I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II. I'm looking for an ultra wide angle lens, preferably an L... I'm talking beyond a 24, like a 17 even.. is there anything out there like this that you guys can recommend?
post #74 of 17639

^ Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II. If you're on a tighter budget, there's the 17-40 f/4L which clearly is slower and isn't as sharp as the 16-35 wide open.
post #75 of 17639
THANKS. Will definitely look into that..sounds about right.
post #76 of 17639

Always been a fan of your photos. Great composition on your rig shots and sharp as usual, especially the second from last shot.
